Goshen Sarah Wells Girl Scouts Receive Accolades from Mayor

Posted by Girl Scout on March 20, 2012 at 11:50 AM Comments comments (0)

On the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts, March 12, 2012, the Goshen Sarah Wells Girl Scouts were treated to an evening of honor by Goshen Village Mayor, Kyle Roddey.

Local Brownie Troop 103 wrote a letter to the Mayor asking if he would declare March 12 Girl Scout Day in Goshen. The Mayor generously responded by inviting every Girl Scout in Goshen to attend a special meeting at the Senior Center where he handed out Certificates of Achievement to the Troops and letters of thanks to each girl. The Mayor’s letter to the girls thanked them for their volunteerism and encouraged them to stay with Girl Scouts, work hard toward their Gold Award and thank their leaders.

The Goshen Sarah Wells Girl Scout Service Unit would like to send a heartfelt thank you to the Mayor and the Trustees for their support of our girls and our organization. The Service Unit would also like to thank Troop 103 for initiating this momentous occasion.

The Goshen Sarah Wells Service Unit won a trophy at the Mid-Hudson St. Patrick's Day parade for Best Youth Group Unit for looking absolutely spectacular!  Our troops had creative banners and the girls all had proud, happy faces.  The parade judges were very impressed with how our girls presented themselves.  Way to go, girls!

Service Unit Name Change

A year and a half after our original proposal our Service Unit has finally received Board approval for our name change.  As of October 1, 2011 our Service Unit will be offically known as the Goshen/Sarah Wells Service Unit. Thanks so very much to everyone for their continued support in this effort.

Sarah Wells was around long before Juliette Low but I'm sure if they had ever had a chance to meet they would have accomplished unfathomable things together!

Girl Scouts celebrates it's 100th Anniversary this year.  2012 also marks the 300th Anniversary of Sarah Wells coming to Goshen to begin her Journey. 

Operation Cookie Drop

Here a few letters that were sent from Troops overseas that have received GS cookies.  Some pictures have been added to our Photos page.


To Whom it May Concern:


1st let me introduce my self. My name is Timothy Kerr, I work for the United Service Organization (USO) here in Basra , Iraq . We here have received a bunch of girl scouts cookies from either you all or possibly from a unit here that are preparing to leave. I found the email address inside some of the boxes.

I just want you to know we put out the boxes of cookies every day, and all the soldiers that come through here, really n really enjoy them. We get about 400 or so soldiers that come through our center daily, we are open here 20 hrs a day, 7 days a week. We provided free internet, Phones to call home, x box, play station games, a wide variety of movies to select from. We hold events such as Texas Holdem Tourn, Bingo, X Box tourns etc. So, we here try to provide what we can to make these soldiers feel at home.


With your cookies is allot better, nothing like some girl scout cookies :) Often, those who donate etc, never really hear from soldiers or from anyone to see if they had received them.


Prior to me coming here n working for the USO, I was deployed with the Ohio National Guard from Mar 08 til Aug 09, went home out processed, went on terminal leave, applied for this job and came back here in Oct 09.


I just wanted to let whoever know, they are in good hands and every one is enjoying them. So, if you could please THANK these troops, n I'm sure there are more, but these are the ones I found Troop 1663, 1300, 1475 & 2370. I'm sure there are more, so could you just let those know we here say THANK YOU n Thanks for all ur SUPPORT.


Feel free to email me anytime. God Bless n God Speed.

Having Girl Scout cookies here at Camp Patriot , brings the soldiers a little closer to home. I have enclosed a couple pictures for you to enjoy and show the Girl Scouts.
